Galactica Quorum #19 – “First Offseason Show”

Not a rerun, no sir. It’s the Offseason but we have plenty to talk about and some goodies as well, including some cut scenes and alternate takes from the Crossroads episodes. We also are tickled to receive some great voice mail, talk about RDM’s “Frak Party” podcast, and finally a review of SciFi’s “Painkiller Jane.” The usual cast of characters: …

Galactica Quorum #18 – “Part Two of Crossroads, Pt 2”

We catch up on emails (and even a voice mail), news, and topics that we didn’t have time to cover on the previous podcast. Plus: a technical essay from Dimitry about the possible stellar distance to Earth, and we lay out our plans for the offseason. It was the usual gang of four: Brian, Dimitry, Jason and Michele. Lots of …

Galactica Quorum #17 – “Crossroads, Part 2”

It will be a long summer and fall for BSG fans with all the twists and surprises that “Crossroads Part 2” left us with. The Season 3 finale ended with several shocking developments, and we are only beginning to wrap our heads around them. We take a stab at the revealed Cylons*, Baltar’s trial, and Starbuck’s return. The Quorum was …

Galactica Quorum #16 – “Crossroads, Part 1”

There were many developments in “Crossroads Part 1” and none loomed larger than Baltar’s trial. We dissect the proceedings, Roslin’s vision, Tigh’s breakdown, Baltar’s fan club, and Lee’s haters club (that would be us). Mentioned links in the podcast: Bears that Care for BC Women’s Hospital and Health Centre I-CON 26 convention at Stony Brook University, March 23-25 with Jamie …

Galactica Quorum #15 – “The Son Also Rises”

It may have been titled “The Son Also Rises” but it was Romo Lampkin that impressed us. We also discuss Lee’s predictable turn as the insubordinate son, whether Adama should be involved at all, Helo as the CAG, and another bonus scene that should have been in the show. Mentioned links from the podcast: I-CON 26 convention at Stony Brook …

Galactica Quorum #14 – “Maelstrom”

We discuss “Maelstrom” and pay our respects to Starbuck, but we have to wonder: was her character too far gone for us to care? And is she really dead? Also, I share some of the patches and pins I’ve acquired for next year’s Halloween costume, as well as The Gun. I’ll post pics in the forum at some point. This …

Galactica Quorum #13 – “Dirty Hands”

The Quorum was divided on “Dirty Hands”…Dimitry and Michele liked it, while I hated it. After discussing some of the issues, we came to a new consensus. Topics include: I-CON 26 convention at Stony Brook University, March 23-25 [opens new window] the refinery ship–it’s no Cloud 9 the emergence of inter-colony divisions and prejudices Adama’s and Roslin’s characterization, out the …

Galactica Quorum #12 – “A Day In The Life”

We did something a little different this time–we gathered at my house to watch “A Day In The Life” and do a “live” show with comments during the broadcast and a full discussion afterwards. We also have some new voices in the Quorum… it’s the Galactica Quorum: Spouse Edition! Dimitry and his wife Jen were there, as well as Michele …

Galactica Quorum #11 – “The Woman King”

After puzzling about whether we had actually missed an episode last week, we recover to discuss “The Woman King.” Topics include the attitudes toward the Sagittarons, Helo’s never-ending moral crusades, Six’s lack of inhibitions, and Dr. Mike “I discriminate against Mutants too” Roberts. On hand for this episode were Brian, Jason, and Dimitry.

Galactica Quorum #10 – “Mailbag”

There was no new episode on Super Bowl Sunday, so we opened the mailbag for listener response and theories. These included: thoughts about the Final Five, Gaeta’s Cylon potentiality, the 13th Tribe, and a classic “Who Would Win” scenario. Quorum participants were Brian, Michele, Dimitry and Jason.
